A favorite troop type that has always fascinated me after seeing Angus McBride's plates in Sekunda's Montvert on the Seleucid army!

I represented them using Newline Designs 20mm African Veterans with Macedonian command figures all with Hellenistic thureos shields sourced from their Jewish javelinmen code. The shield pattern was the main challenge. Originally I had some home made transfers but the tester did not look good at all. I had no choice but to muddle through painting the design by hand which was a daunting prospect. In the end I quite enjoyed the challenge and process overall and will have to tackle more in the future. They are inconsistent but overall I am happy with the result and looks fine en mass at a distant.
